In the fall of 2015, Threewalls partnered with Common Field to publish the essay content in PHONEBOOK 4 by practitioners in the field included in the publication. The essays cover a range of subject matter integral to artist-run culture, including compensation, equity, alternative space history, and the ethos of staying small and independent.
